Whitney Houston: Lifetime Releases Trailer For TV Movie

The controversial Whitney Houston biopic will make its debut on Lifetime on Jan. 17, 2015.

Houston’s family has spoken out against the film, which will be directed by the late pop superstar’s friend and former “Waiting To Exhale” co-star Angela Bassett.

Lifetime has released the first official trailer for the film, which actually includes music by Houston unlike the network’s troubled Aaliyah biopic.
